The ongoing pandemic has spurred a wave of online shopping and the huge 9.9 sales on 9 September just showed us exactly how big it is.

Lazada Malaysia announced that it broke new ground in e-commerce retail by smashing its 2019 9.9 sales record with astoundingly high volume of purchases.

The e-commerce platform witnessed double growth in the Health & Beauty, as well as Kitchen & Dining categories while the Groceries category saw a 280% growth in demand during the sale compared to 2019.

For instance, Lazada’s newly appointed Chief Discount Officer (CDO) Ain Edruce established a sales record by selling over 4,000 Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 in less than 8 minutes.
